Now the Derby has even more of a video game feel than it has in the past. After Stanton, players were seeded based on their home run totals through (June 27's) games.
For Monday's Home Run Derby Stanton will be the No. 1 seed while Bour was seeded seventh. The participants face off head-to-head tournament style until only one hitter remains. He also has five of the six hardest-hit home runs, in terms of exit velocity, ranging from 121.1 miles per hour to 118.6.
The only rookie ever to hit more homers than Judge before the All-Star break was Mark McGwire, who had 33 for the 1987 Oakland A's.
Players may stop the clock once with a 45-second timeout in each of the first two rounds. He will face New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez, the No. 8 seed, in the opening round at Marlins Park. Virtual Reality baseball is a hit at the All-Star FanFest in Miami.
American Leagueplayers had won the MLBHome Run Derby in five of the previous six years before Stanton, so it he broke the streak. He put on a dominant performance and even managed to impress some of his fellow competitors.
It's worth noting that Stanton would still be a high seed in the bracket even without holding the 2016 crown.
Then there's Bellinger, who wasn't playing full-time until late April but still has 25 home runs. Stanton's average home run distance on the night was 446 feet and the 10 longest of that Derby all came off his bat.
The Home Run Derby will begin at 8 p.m. EDT on Monday and will air on ESPN.
Major League Baseball would kill to see Judge and Bellinger face off in an all-rookie battle in the semifinals and Stanton against whomever on the other side.
There's every reason to believe Judge has the goods to win, too. He closes out the first half of the regular season with a.933 OPS, 26 home runs, and 58 RBI in 86 games. That record was previously set by one Joe DiMaggio back in 1936. He leads the majors in home runs right now with 30 through 84 games while also hitting.329.
